This is one of the places we always go to on our trips to Aruba. Food is consistently good. I had the beef Carpaccio (we always get it; it's the best!) and my wife had the Chicken Pincho; both were excellent. Service was good and prices are par for the course for the island. Grab a pitcher of Sangria; it's... More

Although this restaurant has been around for many years, we had never tried it. Someone recommended it to us and we are very glad they did. Food is Dutch/Caribbean and truly excellent. Very casual restaurant with interesting décor. No outdoor seating.

This out-of-the-way place (two blocks off the main 'drag') is charming, friendly, and has great food. Kiki was a wonderfully charming and helpful server.

We've been regular customers of Que Pasa for something like 16 or 17 years. Maybe more. It's always on our 'don't miss' list whether we're in a Aruba for a week or a full month, as we were this past October. We're always delighted by the fact that it is never tired and there are always surprises coming from the... More

We visit qua pasa often but yesterday we had a strange experience with the elderly dutch waiter/manager? He showed us our table and asked what we would like to drink. Because I didn't know the specials I wasn't sure. He kept on standing there and asked again, after a second comment on the specials he went and got them on... More

We discovered Que Pasa 14 years ago and have been back at least 12 times. It is on our "don't miss" Aruba restaurant list. Love it! Delicious Dutch-Aruban cuisine in a laid back atmosphere.

We stumbled upon this place by accident. We had been wandering about Oranjestad, and veered off the beaten path. We were looking for a place to quench our thirst and noticed this place. We went in primarily to have a cocktail and then continue on somewhere else for dinner. We sat at the bar and the bartender (I wish i... More

I had the shrimp special- it was delicious- as was my margarita. They were warm and welcoming. Don't forget to look up when you walk in....

Description
Allthough the name Que Pasa is a familiar Mexican phrase, we are not a Mexican restaurant. Situated in a 100 year old, traditional Aruban building, in downtown Oranjestad. We offer an international menu. There is something for everybody. Besides our menu we are known for our daily changing specials. Our chefs make sure to create unique dinners every night and our attentive wait staff is there to make your evening special. We can accomodate everybody from families to large groups. You have a choice of dinning upstairs open air or downstairs a/c. The que pasa crew hopes to welcome you soon!
